Welcome, friends – to the collection of Cosmic Treadmill episodes wherein Reggie and I commemorated the 25th Anniversary of the landmark Doomsday storyline that shook the comics industry back in the Fall/Winter of 1992-93! In these shows, we broke down what was going on in the world of Superman leading up to his final battle with Doomsday, the story itself… and all of the fallout in Funeral For A Friend and Reign of the Supermen. If you weren’t in the fandom (or perhaps even on the planet back then… you might enjoy hearing about what was going on in the biz and the world. If you were, well – I hope this scratches a nostalgia itch!
Then, as a special bonus, I’ve decided to include events even more tragic for Superman than death itself… J. Michael Straczynski’s opus Grounded from 2010-2011. Sending the post-Crisis Superman shuffling outta continuity (at least for awhile) with a… thud.
